What did the five fingers say to the face?

If only Dave Chapelle aired in Turkey, a punch could have been avoided.

Marcus Haislip is simply trying to revive his NBA career, but dignity takes precedence over resuscitating one's NBA career. What transpired against Fenerbahçe Ülker might hurt his chances of playing in the NBA, but after all, you just can't slap a man.

Haislip, who played with Milwaukee and Indiana over a three-year NBA career, went overseas to play with Efes Pilsen of the Turkish Basketball League this season. Things were going just fine up until yesterday, when a certain slap went too far.

The whole thing started when former Rockets draft pick Mirsad Türkcan pushed Haislip to get him out of rebounding position, and Haislip pushed back as they both began to jog back down the court after the made shot. We assume Turkish basketball players are taught to fight like girls, because Türkcan responded with a lady-like slap to the face. Haislip, whose lone pet peeve (along with Charlie Murphy) is getting his face slapped, threw a devastating right hook that sent Türkcan back a few steps. We don't condone punching here at DCSS, but come on, you slapped a man, Türkcan.

"First of all, you don't slap a man. I mean, even when slapping was fashionable -- you know, they did it in Paris -- some guy would come up 'I challenge you to a duel.' They would have a gunfight after that, somebody had to go!"
